Abstract: Magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging on the Medicare Benefits Schedule (MBS). This imaging service would be used in the diagnosis and treatment planning of patients who are suspected of having non-ischaemic dilated cardiomyopathies (NIDCM). The target population comprises: i) people with heart failure (HF) symptoms in whom echocardiography is inconclusive; ii) people with HF symptoms and a low to intermediate risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) in whom echocardiography is suggestive of dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM); iii) asymptomatic first-degree relatives of someone diagnosed with NICDM and in whom echocardiography is inconclusive; or iv) asymptomatic first-degree relatives of someone diagnosed with NIDCM, with an intermediate to high risk of CAD, and in whom echocardiography is suggestive of DCM that requires further investigation prior to treatment.
